 Notes & Reviews
 
Originally from Boston, Audible Mainframe moved to the Los Angeles in 2006 and have been wowing crowds ever since. AMF includes six young musicians comprised of a vocalist, guitar, bass, drummer, keyboards/trumpet, and a DJ who combine their musical talent with the realities of everyday life in pure, hip hop form. 'Transients,' a 13-song, self-produced album, reflects the journey the band has been on for the last six years. It offers an eclectic mix of hip-hop, soul, and dance grooves; telling stories about the bands childhood memories, triumphs together, and staying positive through rough times. The album features a new lineup of instrumentation and presents an uplifting twist in today's hip-hop world by incorporating a combination of acoustic & electronic beats and real musician flare. In comparison to their last album, 'Transients' is a more mature AMF - lyrically, musically and spiritually. 'When people listen to this album I want them to feel like The Future just punched them in the face,' says AMF's Emcee and lyricist, Exposition (a.k.a. Expo). 'We wanted to make the type of hip-hop record that made us fall in love with hip-hop in the first place: big beats, excellent musicianship, and next level throwback lyricism.' The album is a master blend of upbeat, original hip hop tracks including songs like 'Subi Alto,' which means 'climb high' in Cape Verdean Creole (Expo's native tongue), and is about forgetting your troubles and climbing above the nonsense you may have experienced throughout your day, week, or life. It also features a group of talented, young children singing in the chorus. Another track, 'Money and Flash,' describes their move from Boston to LA, and their adjustment period on the left coast, displaying a funky 'west coast-influenced' hip-hop beat. The song 'Don't Be Sheep,' has an undeniable catchy chorus that shakes and moves audiences all over. Other featured songs on the album include 'Ice Cold,' 'Poison Ivy' and 'Anybody Else.'
